Nike Being Dumped - Good

Nike Being Dumped - Good

No big shock here, after the awful shirt issue with Nike last season (or was it the season before, my memory has gone!) it is no surprise that Nike are going to be dropped by Villa.

Prepared said in The Forum > Click Here

'It is being reported that we will finish with Nike after them messing around with us and sign a multi-million pound deal with another manufacturer.

The rumours are Macron who make kits for Napoli, West Ham and Leeds.

It's not gone down well with some on twitter but I'd rather a smaller manufacturers put us first and get them on time, than a big manufacturer put us last like Nike did.

Plus I thought the Nike designs were sh**, only our very first kit from them was nice, I mean what was they doing with the cheques on the kits??'

The Birmingham Mail have a report quoting merchandising manager John Greenfield

John said: 'We will be in a position to make the announcement in March. At Villa, a contract is a contract and we would not want to do anything to jeopardise this.'

Admitting that we had big issues with Nike delivering the goods needed and although he wouldn't say who we would move to he did add,

'We have excellent strong relationships with many brands.'

My dream brand would be Adidas but the old Trefoil logo! eg: Adidas Trefoil

I think some of our best kits have come from the likes of Hummell in the past. Although a poor brand, I'd like to see something like Puma, a brand with some retro/cool approach

I was pleased when we got the deal with Nike but have to admit they have disappointed. Adidas or puma would be ideal, we can't have the same manufacturer as west ham or we will be bloody identical!

It may be sensible but it's a fickle world and I want a manufacturer that deals with the biggest and best in the world. I too would love puma - a retro, tradional brand with a tradional team with retro, traditional colours. Good match!

Leeds' kit is nice and traditional so Macron may prove to be a popular choice. Don't like West Ham's though.

Macron is Greek for long.... Does this mean it will suit the long ball game.... ;-)
